    Can you tell me what MSRP is on the height adjuster pin for Hustler Z ?

    WOW!! I thought for a minute my dealer was price gouging when he charged me $17.69 before tax. A little higher then MSRP, but usually Hustler parts are reasonable. I paid $6 for the same thing from a non Hustler dealer in the past. Oh well, I just thought that price seemed outrageous for a piece of medal that tends to bend a lot and need replaced often. At that price I will remember to lower the deck during transport :)

    I have been using Super Z's since 2003 and have never bent a pin. Is the deck jumping out of detent when the mower is trailering?

    Phillips head screwdrivers are hardened steel, will fit the height adjuster holes, and are a lot cheaper than that!!!!

    We pay 16.95 to our dealer. We really think the price is an outrage on hustlers part considering they are only lasting a month. Gets exspensive when you own 4 Hustlers. This winter we will fabricate our own that will last longer and not cost so much.

    This is what needs to be done.
    I rarely see a bent pin if trailered properly.

    I agree, but my post was focused on the price rather then the reason for replacement. Even if the pin only needs replaced once the price seems high compared to lets say a mulch kit $89, blowout baffle $50, Hitch kit $29 (which all take much more medal and design efforts). I mean if you guys can offer custom rear bumper's for $50, I would think this pin would be a little cheaper.

    Don't get me wrong, I am very happy with Hustler part prices and the examples above would cost much more from other manufacturers. Which is why I was a little shocked and questioned rather my dealer was price gouging. I am happy to find he is not since I just bought a new mower this year from him, and the same day I bought the pin I purchased a Redmax BP blower. I guess he forgot to charge me for the pin is why I received an invoice for it in the mail.
